For too long, marginality and liminality have been viewed as places of exile from which the emarginated are to be ‘brought in from the cold’ and integrated so they too can sit beside the ‘warm fires’ of liberalism (and all will be well). However, as bell hooks (1990) reminded us, the margin can be ‘. . more than a site of deprivation . . it is also the site of radical possibility, a space of resistance’ (hooks, 1990, p. 149). com - licensed to Feng Chia University - PalgraveConnect - 2011-04-01 Internalised Ableism: The Tyranny Within 29 3 Increasingly law mediates medico-technological formulations of impairment.

On occasion these outlaw realities of disability are subject to being governed and therefore regulated by absorption into anomalous zones. According to Razack (1998), these anomalous zones are spaces that tolerate departures from norms and therefore are places where there is the possibility of norm subversion. Legal consciousness, combined with a matrix of scientific ableism (biomedicalism), has produced a fabricated sense of a ‘natural’ (albeit colonised space) where the juridical tentacles of the law are difficult to trace, let alone to assess what those fabricated ‘spaces’ enable.

This labouring has resulted in lives of ontological vulnerability. There is an ethical imperative for us to interrogate the impact of ableism and speak of the injuries it causes for disabled people. By exposing the practices of ableism and the hidden process of internalised ableism, I am mindful of the necessity to not cause further injury. An example here could be the continual use of photographic images of people exhibited as freaks when alive, and re-exhibited to illustrate ableist practices.
